  • The lyrics to "I Love You" as Lee Bernstein had originally written for Piggyback Songs differ slightly from that used in any Barney media, having only one verse that is most similar to the first verse of the Backyard Gang version, except the third and fourth lines are, "Here's a great big kiss and a hug from me to you."[3]
